I agree with Gaichuke. A notification sound is just to notify you that something is happening. If you, as Paladinleeds says he wants, want to check out something you just got notified by pronto, your probably so fast that you can see the toast notification. And it's not like you get 10 notifications a second.
You get ONE notification for ONE thing that JUST happened. You then check your phone and it's there. How hard can it be. I have no problem finding the app that gave me the notification.

Lot of sarcasm in the air, it seems.
I would still argue (I might be very wrong with this assertion) that this particular customization options sounds like something only maybe 1-5% of the users would actually use. I honestly don't see why anyone would bother micromanaging their device in this level.

I prefer some customization. I do have separate ringtones for a few of my contacts. I want to know when my wife calls (you don't let that one go to voicemail) or my kids. The rest get a basic ringtone. I would prefer some customization for SMS also for the same reason. If it is just a random person sending me a text I might wait but if it is the wife I know she needs something. When it comes to apps it would be nice if they had unique tones. If I hear the ESPN tone I know it isn't that important at that moment. But to have no customization - why have a SMART Phone, sounds like any phone?

What kind of weird thread is this? It is a logical request. Who could deny that it would be useful? "You don't need that feature." It's 2013, I think there are flip phones with this ability.

I agree with OP. The ability to assign different notification sounds to different apps would be beneficial to some. MSFT may not want apps to implement their custom notification sounds, and if that is the case, the least they can do is allow users to assign different in-built (built into the OS) notification sounds to different apps.
This would obviously be optional, so all the people who think this is unnecessary can simply not touch this feature and use the one default notification sound for all apps.

The inability to choose a custom SMS tone is the first HUUUUGE issue. I should talk a poll to see how many Nokia users use the Nokia Message sound. In fact, I'll post that next.
Blackberry was very popular because it allowed custom notifications for each person. Apple recently added this ability and when I still had my 4S, I found this extremely useful as I have a work email, a personal email, tutoring clients, my fiance, my friends, facebook alerts and a crap load else. I am in the lab and I don't want to have to pick up my phone for every. single. notification because I do not know what it is. It is easy to blow off a basic feature if you don't use it. Don't knock it until you try it ^_^

I'm confused of your examples though. Let's imagine that WP8 supports custom ringtones. Your phone rings and you can hear it's not from your wife or daughter (default ringtone), do you not then always look who's calling?
